Mr. Robert James Thomson

Editor in Chief

The Wall Street Journal

1211 Avenue of the Americas

New York, NY 10036


Dear Mr. Thomson:


This is my second letter to you concerning Neanda Salvaterra, a narcissist and reporter for The Wall Street Journal.


In this missive, my final one, I will delineate an unsophisticated attempt by Milton Allimadi, Publisher of The Black Star News, and Neanda Salvaterra, then an officer of The Black Star News,to shake down Goldman Sachs and Lloyd Blankfein for several million dollars. This was done by requesting that Goldman Sachs invest in The Black Star News.  The letter was addressed to Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs. 


This attempt at a shakedown in the form of an investment was totally the brainstorm of Salvaterra.


On 1 March 2007 I published The Black Star News published my article, “Goldman’s Obscene Bonuses.”  This article described accounting fraud by Goldman Sachs.  It was to be the first in a series of articles that detailed violations of federal law by Goldman Sachs.


Other articles followed including:

  1. “Rip-Off:  Wall Street Price Fixing,” which was published in The Black Star News on 17 May 2007.  This article described price fixing in the Exchange Traded Funds at the American Stock Exchange.  Of course Goldman and Spear Leeds was involved in this price fixing.  Goldman even defrauded its public customers.
  2. “AIG And Stock Manipulation,” which was published in The Black Star News on 5 November 2007.  This article described how Spear Leeds and Kellogg and Goldman Sachs manipulated the price of AIG.


So my articles exposed violations of federal law at Goldman Sachs.  There were many other articles that exposed violations of federal securities law at Goldman Sachs.


After my first article or first two articles, Goldman donated several million dollars to Morehouse College (?), a traditional black college.  Goldman gave The Black Star News an exclusive on its donation. 


Fast track several years later to 2009.  The Financial crisis was convulsing America.  I mentioned to Salvaterra that I had been indirectly approached about receiving a substantial payment if I would author more articles and be willing to testify about Goldman’s violations of federal law.  I told her that I had declined.


Salvaterra was impressed- because she recognized that she and Milton could attempt to request funding from Goldman because the funding drive by Irwin of Jaffe & Asher was not going well.


Note:  One point.  Salvaterra and Allimadi are congenital liars and will stand in front of a person and lie through their scataphagous teeth. 


So Salvaterra and Allimadi decided to send Goldman a copy of a business plan for The Black Star News to see if Goldman would invest to silence my articles.


The idea for this shakedown was Salvaterra’s.  I never told Allimadi about the proposal that I write articles and testify.  I told only Salvaterra. 


I had no knowledge of this shakedown.  I only discovered the enclosed letter of rejection from Goldman when I was searching for copies of invoices from Stellar Printing.  These invoices showed that Allimadi and Salvaterra were having only several hundred copies of The Black Star News printed, but were telling advertisers that 10,000 copies were being printed.


I have enclosed a copy of the letter, dated 28 April 2009, from Eileen M. Dillon that rejected Allimadi’s request that Goldman invest in The Black Star News.


I thought that you would be interested in this aspect of your employee’s past. 


Thank you.
